New Delhi: Ravindra Jadeja, one of the best all-rounders in Chennai Super Kings has been unfollowed by the franchise on their Instagram handle. The cricketer has been with the team for almost 10 years now.
Jadeja has been ruled out from the ongoing IPL owing to bruised rib, which he suffered on the day of the encounter with Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 4. Following the injury, an official statement was issued notifying, “Ravindra Jadeja reported a bruised rib and was unavailable for Chennai Super Kings’ game against Delhi Capitals on Sunday. He was under observation and based on medical advice he has been ruled out for the rest of the IPL season.”
The sudden departure of the 33-year-old player has given rise to several speculations among netizens. Many are hogging on to creating memes while many are in serious concerns that something is “brewing for sometime” between the player and CSK.
One of the users wrote, “Hoping that everything is okay bt still I’m worried,” while another wrote, “CSK management & dhoni played cheap politics with #Jadeja first dhoni made him scapegoat captain to blamed for worst season, then sacked him from captain in just 8 matches, then Dhoni criticised his captaincy, then #CSK unfollowed him & now sacked from IPL BEST PLAYER but insulted.”

Jadeja has handed over the captaincy to MS Dhoni. The team lost six games out of eight in his captaincy. Jadeja even scored the lowest out of all the seasons. He managed to score 111 runs and took three wickets in all these games.
Meanwhile, under the captaincy of Dhoni, the team ended up winning two games out of three.
